President Michael D Higgins

I'm calling it! All evidence points to it so far.

All hail our new Leprechaun OverLord (LOL?).



The Washington Post has already called him an elfish 70 yr.old.

I think its a deserved victory after all his years of devotion to public service and his passion for human rights. His creative nature adds another dimension, and his years of experience will ensure a safe pair of hands.

And look how cute and wee he is- He's great!



So what kind of Head of State do you think he'll be? What weaknesses and strengths will come through? Will, he in time, garner similar respect and popularity to McAleese?
Will he make it to the end of his term?

And yes, I am hoping there isn't a sudden turnaround in voting patterns during the day!

He looks to have it.
Maybe the best man for the job of the lot.

Without a doubt. Glad Norris ran. Great to see him exposed properly.

Tallys giving him 35-40% of first counts

That's not saying much.

I'm disappointed but congratulations all the same. The fact remains though that the media handed him this in the last few days with the setup on Frontline. The audience was stacked against Gallagher from the start. He was ruthlessly smeared based on the word of 2 former convicted criminals.

Any word on the referendums?

The Audience = the public = we the people

I doubt he ever had the support the media were saying he had, if anything they were giving him more credit than he deserved.

I mean the studio audience. Didn't seem representative of what the polls were saying at the time. It was a setup. The use of a fake SF twitter account by RTE was very unprofessional. It was a victory for smears.

He gave terrible answers. He messed up! 5 candidates have supporters who think the media were against them. The media were cunts in this campaign but the idea that they all just piled in on Gallagher is laughable! Go on to any social media site. The general tide had turned against him over the weekend and that is what was represented in the debate.

Actually the way the campaign progressed yes - I do think the media were biased against all the candidates except Michael D. He didn't get a single tough question in the entire campaign.

On a positive note, at least the Oireachtas Inquiry referendum looks sunk according to initial tallies.
